It has been a most unusual start to the 2021-22 NBA season — and not just for the Boston Celtics. A number of teams have jumped out to rough starts, and plenty more of the league’s superstar players than Jayson Tatum have got off to shoot well below the numbers they usually see in terms of both scoring and efficiency.

At the same time, some teams seen as likely play-in candidates or worse are currently at the top of the standings, begging the question of what exactly has been going on in the Association to make things play out so oddly to begin this season.

On the most recent episode of the eponymous CLNS Media podcast hosted by Bob Ryan and Jeff Goodman, WEEI sports talk radio legend Gary Tanguay joins the esteemed duo to talk about the weird start to the season, where the Celtics sit in it and other basketball-adjacent issues.

Watch the clip embedded above to hear their takes on this odd beginning, while we wait with fingers crossed for Jayson Tatum to find his stroke.
